here. >> good to be here. >> let's take a listen. john mccain is just now questioning, so let's listen in. >> sure. >> great members of this committee who have contributed so much to our nation's defense. senator hagel, members of this committee will raise questions reflecting concerns with your policy positions. they're not reasonable people disagreeing, they're fundamental disagreements. our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your world view on critical areas of national security including security in the middle east. with that in mind, let me begin with your opposition to the surge in iraq. 2006 we lost -- republicans lost the election and we began the surge, and you wrote a piece in "the washington post," quote, leaving iraq honorably. 2007 you committed -- you said it's not in the national interest to deepen its military involvement. in january of 2007 in a rather bizarre exchange with secretary rice in the foreign relations committee after some nonsense about syria and crossing the border into iran and syria because of the surge, then a reference to
-election, this was john mccain's position on immigration. >> complete the dang fence. >> it will work this time? senator, you're one of us. >> i'm john mccain and i approve this message. >> and then, on november 6th, 2012, they lost 71% of the hispanic vote to president obama, and literally after that, they started to talk about compromise on immigration. >> we have to get rid of the immigration issue altogether, it is simple for me to fix it. i think you control the border first, create a pathway for the people here, you don't say you have to go home. and that is a position that i have evolved on. because you know what? it has got to be resolved. >> and so today, immigration became the first order of business in the new congress for some republicans. >> first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border. modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for th
the iraq surge. as chuck hagel is challenged by john mccain. >> would you please answer the question? will you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? yes or no. >> my reference to the surge being -- >> the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you are right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i am not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> let the record show you refuse to answer that question. now, please go ahead. >> well, if you would like me to explain why i -- >> i absolutely would like answer answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that. >> is this finally the year for immigration reform? president obama sits down with jose diaz bullart. >> i don't think that it should take many, many months. i think this is something that we should be able to get done certainly this
mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 general election. the overall share of republican votes was -- people that voted for republicans is white. 11% nonwhite. it is -- that is an untenable -- we saw in 2012, and it will only get worse if they continue to lose 70% plus of the hispanic vote. that's what's changed here. republicans broadly recognize it. the question is jose touched on it, the path to citizenship. that is the piece that is always the one that conservative republicans said we will not do this. we are validating illegal behavior, no matter what we do. now there are some republicans on board. marco rubio, john mccain, lindsey graham saying, look, this has to be in the proposal. can they rally republicans in the house and senate behind the political necessity
. some of the most point questions came from hagel's former good friend and former vietnam vet senator mccain. he said he wouldhe said if he became president hagel would work for him. but more than a decade later the bromance is over. and mccain ripped him over the issue that tore them apart. the surgery in iraq. hagel called it the biggest blunder since vietnam. and mccain supported the surge. and today mccain made it clear that he is not over that disagreement. >> right or i don't think, that's a direct question, i expect a direct answer. >> the surge assisted in the objective. but if we review the record a little bit. >> please answer the question. were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous. blunder since vietnam yes or no. >> i'm not going to give you yes or no. i think it's far more complicated to that. my answer is i'll defer that to history. >> that went on and on and hagel might not have convinced mccain but his ideas did convince another influential politician, president obama. the two of them, president obama and chuck hagel toured iraq an
entirety at c-span.org. live now to the w hotel here in washington where senators chuck schumer and john mccain will discuss some of the big policy issues being debated in congress including bipartisan immigration legislation unveiled this week. it's part of politico's playbook breakfast series moderated by white house correspondent mike allen. of it's just getting underway. >> we have two of the ring leaders here this morning, senator mccain and senator schumer who helped pull off something that in washington people didn't think was possible, which was a bipart sap agreement. so they'll take us inside that, and we're going to look ahead to the coming days. before we chat with the senators, we're going to welcome politico's manu ragu who helped break this story and then after that we'll have senator mccain. before that i'd like to thank bank of america for their partnership for making these conversations possible, including that incredible brunch at the inauguration where people had a great time. some people had too great a time. we had great conversation. the playbook series is a forum that ma
, schumer, menendez, bennett and republicans mccain, graham, rubio and flake. florida doesn't border on another country but you get my drift. it's an impressive list of names but griagreeing on some details won't be easy. don't call it a gang, by the way. the senators released a four page what i would call a memo of understanding that lays out the principles they say must be part of any deal and these are the principles they all eight agree to. a pathway to citizenship is contingent on first securing the border. by immediately adding new surveillance technology, think drones, more border patrol agents. the proposal would also require a new tracking system to reduce visa overstays. a commission made up of governors in the border states, law enforcement officials and community leaders would assess when enforcement measures had been completed and then the path to citizenship for those undocumented workers. still vague exactly how this commission will decide whether border security benchmarks have been met. were there specific metrics are is it a subjective deal? and when does the clock
. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring i
, arizona republican senator john mccain and new jersey democratic senator bob menendez. >>> then our powerhouse roundtable takes on all the week's politics, and is there really a controversy over this? ♪ and the home of the brave >> you know who caught her, lance armstrong. yeah, he is such a stickler for the truth now. >>> joining us, george will, democratic strategist donna brazile, republican congressman dave schweikert, new republic publisher and facebook co-founder chris hughes and the host of npr's "morning edition," steve inskeep. >>> hello. great to have you with us. george is off this weekend. so much to get to this morning including that controversy over the oscar-nominated film "zero dark thirty" and so-called enhanced interrogation. mark boal, the producer and screenwriter is here to answer critics. >>> but first front and center this morning, washington is set to tackle an immigration overhaul. the president is planning to speak about it on tuesday, and our two headlining senators are working on a plan as well. let's start with ranking of the armed services committee,
mccain who would have been arrested for assaulting secretary of state hillary clinton. and third, i kept thinking about what a glorious time for the pentagon to announce it was lifting the ban on women in combat because if there was any proof that women are ready for combat, it was watching hillary clinton. in front of those senators yesterday. i thought she was magnificent! andself things about this hearing. but the first one we gotta say again, it's disgusting what the republicans have been doing. remember mitt romney started this, in the middle of the campaign, when we have a terrorist attack against the united states. it was just like 9-11 in the sense this was american soil, i don't care, benghazi is in libya but it is american soil. american consulate. terrorists attacked us. what do we do after 9-11, we all pulled together and said we're going to get those s.o.b.s. what did the republican party do after benghazi? we're going to get president obama. we're going to get hillary clinton. we're going to get susan rice. started by mitt romney. picked up by john mccain. ever since t
for his second term. here's what senator john mccain, one of the senators, said yesterday. >> look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we believe should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we've got to understand that. second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in the shadows in illegal status. >> and senator mccain is talking about what some republicans call the 27% problem, and president obama won strong support from latinos to mitt romney's 27%. and romney's poor showing among the latinos is part of a growing trend. and republicans have been steadily lose agreeing share of the latino vote which is in 2012 romney with 27% down from mccain's 31% from 2008 and george w. bushes in 2004. it's an urgent call for republicans, so considering all that what's probably the most interesting thing about today's announcement was how much it looked like earlier efforts of immigration reform, with the main sticking point being the "a" word, amnesty. >> i have not and will not support any blanket amnesty.
are working on a plan as well. let's start with ranking of the armed services committee, john mccain. welcome, senator mccain. you have spent a great deal of time in your career working on immigration issues. when do you think you can get this bipartisan plan out, and how much can you tell us about what's in it? >> well, we're going to be announcing the principles that will be guiding our translation of it into legislation. we've still got a lot of hard work ahead, but i'm very pleased with the progress. frankly -- >> you're announcing this week? >> yeah, we'll be -- senator menendez and i and senator schumer, senator graham, senator durbin and some -- we are -- we've been working together for some weeks now. we'll be coming forward. it's not that much different from what we tried to do in 2007. martha, what's changed is honestly is that there is a new i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more importantly on the republican side of the aisle, that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. we've been -- >> so this is comprehensive. it's not piecemeal.
brought the heat like hagel's self-described old friend john mccain. >> were you correct in your assessment? >> well, i would defer to the judgment of history to sort that out, but -- >> the committee deserves your judgment as to whether you were right or wrong about the surge. >> i'll explain why i made those comments -- >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> the surge assisted in the objective, but if we review the record a little bit -- >> will you please answer the question. were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam. were you correct or incorrect? yes or no? >> when given a chance to respond, here is what hagel said. >> the comment i made about the most dangerous foreign policy decision since vietnam was about not just the surge, but the overall war of choice going into iraq. >> that point found broad support in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll with nearly 6 in 10 americans saying the entire iraq war was
, pure and simple. from the mouths of john mccain and lynn say graham as they slashed away at war hero hagel. badgering the witness is too nice a description. the haushtion swirled like buzzards sweeping down, pecking and pulling at the skin of a former colleague who dared to say this country's been too ready to enter wars the american people quickly wish we'd never gotten into. what's with this hatred? now centered in the american sunbelt. what do we make of this poll shows two out of three texas republicans now want our president impeached? why the cussedness, why the range war, why the hatred of anyone who dares to stand with obama? why can't politics be a batter matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intermurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back and forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you corr
again. >> schieffer: we'll talk about all of it with senator john mccain, a senior republican on the armed services committee stanley mcchrystal, the former commander of our troops in afghanistan. wells virginia's democratic senator joe manchin and loss an list mayoran -- los angeles marion antonio villaraigosa and amy walter and our own john dickerson. this is face the nation. captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and good morning even again and we're going to begin with the senior republican, senator john mccain. senator thanks for being with us this morning. well the president made it pretty clear on friday, we're leaving afghanistan and perhaps sooner than some expected, and every report you hear from behind the scenes is we're going to keep very very few people there. what do you make of this, what's your take on all this? >> it's a one of a series of decisions the president has made basically irrelevanting his military advisors so whether it be in iraq which is now unraveling very significantly or wh
. here's a guy four years ago john mccain was saying chuck hagel would make a great secretary of state. bill crystal was saying eight years ago chuck hagel should be vice president of the united states. if ronald reagan or george bush or mitt romney nominated chuck hagel, they would be saying he's a republican! he's a conservative. he's a war hero! he's one of ours but barack obama nominates him and right away, they're trying to bring him down. >> i found it amazing that, of all the people to come out and say they had reservations and concerns about chuck hagel, john mccain was leading that argument. i can almost understand some of the guys who have just -- are not -- haven't been in the congress or haven't been in the senate that long but john mccain's been here long enough. he knows better. >> bill: if anybody is a blood brother to chuck hagel, it's john mccain. but there's a total smear campaign. two issues. let's deal with them quickly. one, they say he's anti-israel. baloney! you look at his votes. that's what counts. he voted for billions of billions of dollars of military aid to
with john mccain, his former really best friend -- one of his best friends here who is now a critic of hagel. >> dana, i'm glad you mentioned that. let's listen in, the republican from arizona with his comments. >> with that in mind, let me begin with your opposition to the surge in iraq. 2006, republicans lost the election, and we began the surge and you wrote a piece in "the washington post" called "leaving iraq honorably." 2007, you committed -- you said it's not in the national interest to deepen its military involvement. in 2007, in a rather bizarre change with secretary rice in the foreign relations committee after in nonsense about syria and crossing the border into iran and syria. because of the surge, then -- and a reference to cambodia in 1970, you said, quote, when you set in motion the kind of policy the president's talking about here, it's very, very dangerous. quote, matter of fact, i have to say, madam secretary, i think the speech gimp last night by this president represents the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam, if it's carried out, i will r
at the table alone fielding hostile questions, including one-time close friend, john mccain. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> reporter: that exchange centered on hagel's past opposition to the iraq surnl, a surge that mccain championed. >> no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me, my beliefs or my record. we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and our interests. americans must engage in the world, not retreat from the world. >> reporter: for hours, one republican after another accused the former two-term nebraska senator of shading his true beliefs. among their concerns, past statements criticizing israel. >> do you think it's right that israel was committing a, quote, sickening slaughter as you said on the floor and senate. >> reporter: and intimidation about the pro israel lobby. >> name one person, in your opinion, who is intimidated by the israel lobby in the united states senate.
calls a pry tir for the second term. this is what senator mccain said, one of the senators behind the plan said today. >> look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote which we believe should be ours for a variety of reasons, and we have to understand that. seblgd second of all, we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in the shadows in illegal status. >> and senator mccain is talking about what some republicans call the 27% problem, and president obama won strong support from latinos to mitt romney's p27%. and republicans have been steadily lose agreeing share of the latino vote which is in 2012 romney with 27% down from mccain's 2008 percentage. the sticking point is the a-word, amnesty. >> i will not and i will never support and never have and will never support any effort to blanket grant amnesty to any folks who have stayed in the country illegally. >> i don't support amnesty. i don't support special benefits. >> essentially granting amnesty to many illegals is outrageous. >> and amnesty, and many of them need t
. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so many fascinating moments to it. should be very different today, don't you think? >> yeah. that was probably the best moment you pulled out there. that was secretary clinton being forceful, showing some accountability,
senator mccain, senator schumer who helps pull off something that in washington people didn't think was possible which was a bipartisan agreement so they will take us inside that and we are going to look ahead to the coming day. before we chat with the senators we are going to welcome "politico"'s manu raju who helped break the story and after that senator mccain. before that i would like to thank bank of america for their partnership for making these conversations possible including that incrediblincredibl e brunch and inauguration where people had a great time. some people had to grade a great time. we have a great conversation with the playbook series is a forum that makes it possible for us to talk in-depth about the issues that matter the most in washington so thank you john and bank of america colleagues. out there and twitter land hash but playbook reckless and if i do it right the questions will pop up right here. i have my first tweet so we will try to do that and the tweets will pop up as week. now i would like to welcome to let it go's star manu raju. [applause] thank you
from the two leading hagel indicators. schumer on the democrats and mccain on the republican. he is from new york. unequivocal. if he goes with hagel in the end, hagel will be approved. as for mccain, his issue is more iran and iraq. mccain did say in 2006 he liked hagel. he would have made him secretary of state or considered him. what has happened since really gone against the grain of mccain. remember hagel came out against the surge, which was important in mccain's view. he came out against designating the revolutionary guards as terrorists. mccain is equivocal, he has been critical but he hasn't committed himself. if he comes out in favor of hagel in the end, he will also be. if schumer and mccain oppose him, he could be defeated. >> bret: one-word answers. will one of the nominees go down? >> if it was it would be hagel. but give him a 3 to 1 advantage. >> no. >> maybe. >> bret: stay tune to the washington latest solution to the nation's debt problem. e pro. but, dad, you've got...

campaign that he had not gone forth with the bill. john mccain, the first big republican sponsor with george w. bush, for comprehensive immigration reform back in in te in 2000 including a path to citizenship, guest worker program, and ultimately border security and john mccain learned the hard way a lot of folks want the border secure and verifiably so before the other programs go forward. chuck schumer, the ranking democrat, said they say it is time to put partisanship aside and democrats are not looking to use this as a leverage in wake of the election which hispanic and latino voters were favoring democrats, not so in the case of republicans. the g.o.p. recognizes they need to do something. democrats are saying they you will not play political football. >> we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that soxes the problem and becomes law. >> they put their marking on it today and the president will lay out his proposals. the senate majority leader, harry reid, before the news conference announcing the plan came out, said the so-called ga
senators mccain, rubio and bennett have come together on bipartisan principles for immigration reform legislation that we hope can pass the snot -- the senate in overwhelming fashion. we still have a long way to go. but this bipartisan -- sorry, we still have a long way to go but this bipartisan blueprint is a major break through. it's our hope these principles can be turned into legislation by march and have a mark up by the committee with a goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. senator durbin and i spoke to the president yesterday to update him on the group's progress. and he couldn't be more pleased. he strongly support this is effort. the key to our compromise so to recognize that americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration and support legal immigration. to this end our framework contains four basic pillars. first, we create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently living in the united states that is contingent upon securing our borders. second, we reform our legal immigration that will build the american economy and stren
senator mccain set the tone when he began with a pretty pointed line of questioning about iraq and about the surge in 2007, whether that was successful. then we saw senator cruz play pretty, you know, pretty damaging interviews that the senator hagel gave to al jazeera sometime ago and limited context provided left a pretty poor impression pregs, an impression he agreed with callers to the show that had unflattering things to say about the united states. >> right. >> ernesto, yes, we admit hagel's having a rough day but i think everybody expects he will be confirmed and i want to talk about vietnam and the impact on the thought process over there. hagel would be the first vietnam vet head of defense. kerry, vietnam vet, now head of state. what do you think having these vietnam vets will do to the thought process going on over there? i mean, vietnam has been sort of major thing, impacting american foreign policy for decades and obama administration first post-vietnam administration among democrats. not vietnam people and bringing it back in to the equation so what impact do you think viet
in national security. >> i thought that point was very much born out in john mccain's questioning, which is give me a yes or no answer, was the iraq surge a good idea? yoovl, it's a nuanced position. a yes or a month. it's a way of john mccain scoring a point for himself and also undermining chuck hagel's credibility. richard, the question is when you watch that exchange, does that work in terms of re-establishing republican bonefieds on foreign policy? >> look, john mccain has a lot of things going on. you know, he is losing relevance. he has lost some powerful positions in the senate. he has always played in the media space, right? the really curious actually compelling personal piece of this is that he and chuck hagel were friends. they campaigned together when he was on the effect paid in 2000. they were mavericks together against the establishment, and these two men have fallen apart dramatically, spectacularly in a way that john mccain does. when john mccain and actually john kerry were working on normalization on the p.o.w., m.i.a. question, john mccain almost came to blows with s
rules. i see senator mccain is on the floor and i acknowledge his leadership with senator levin. i was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that
get into it, the one who made the most headlines on this, not john mccain. the idea that every sunday talk show feels that they have to book john mccain every sunday is -- i am so sick of it. common. you know he will say something crazy but he is crazy. why keep booking him. >> for sure. >> so didn't make any news yesterday. the one who did was colin powell. first of all, who former secretary of state, former chairman of the joint chiefs who said that -- he came out very, very strongly in defense of senator haggel. >> people say that doesn't necessarily make him a good candidate for secretary of defense. i will tell you who thinks that makes him a good candidate for secretary of defense, the men and women in the armed forces of the united states and their parents. >> meaning, of course he will be the first enlisted man to serve as secretary of defense. and one of the few wounded in wartime and in combat to the serve as secretary of defense. then where colin powell really made news was when he we want on to say, this whole battle over chuck ha
to the constitution limits what we can do about guns. >>> senator john mccain appeared at a breakfast in washington where he told a joke about himself and the low approval ratings of his colleagues. >> a guy ran up in the airport and say anybody tell you look like john mccain? i said, yeah. he says, doesn't it sometimes make you mad as hell? >> that's your morning dish of scrambles politics. >>> we tern to nbc meteorologist bill karins with the weather channel forecast. good morning you to, bill. >> the last 48 hours have been a blur. so much cleanup to be done. now we're doing it in bitterly cold temperatures, too. the problem is all the way up through connecticut. look at these wind gusts. we just gusted to 52 miles per hour in hartford. 55 in bridgeport. that is enough to shake the house and wake a lot of people up. if you're driving at this hour, if you can, well, don't. wait another half hour. things will improve in connecticut. again, all of these really strong winds are now heading to boston. boston just clocked in. that is the highest i've seen in new england. 59 mile-per-hour wind gusts. w
